Updating our cover Page brings us up to date now with the incredible outreach our group of willing stitchers have made since the inception of QFO back in 2007/2008. Back then our 'mission' was to provide children in 26 COM Homes in India with tangible 'hugs' in the form of quilts which would wrap them in love from across the other side of the world. This we achieved over the intervening years between then and now.
Since then we have been approached by other needy childrens organisations, in China, Ethiopia, Zambia,Indonesia, Uganda ... as well as our very latest project ..... ageing Holocaust survivors in the Haifa Homes in Israel. Who would have thought that a small group of ladies could touch so many lives ... as well as enrich their own? It truly is an absolute blessing to be involved in this Group.
Where there is a need ... and where we are able to meet it ... we will. There is truly no better feeling than to give ... and our quilts and other stitchings that we have been able to provide ... well, we trust that lives and hearts are brightened wherever they are received.
"We create our quilts in two sizes .. to cater for the babies and also the older
children in the homes/organisations that we gift our quilts to around the globe.
These quilt top sizes are : 35" x 45" for babies and 55" x 75" for older children."
We welcome donations of fabric and thread, we welcome off-site stitchers ... we welcome the opportunity to change lives, one loving fabric 'hug' at a time. Please visit our Website and share our vision.
